Descanso Gardens is a 150-acre botanical garden located in La Cañada Flintridge, Los Angeles County, California. If you’re not sure where that is in the Los Angeles Metro area, it’s in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains northwest of Pasadena. Descanso has a fascinating history dating back to 1937, more information here.
Summarizing from last weeks post: I was not prepared to take professional photographs of the surreal beauty of the Enchanted Forest of Lights we encountered at the Descanso Botanical Gardens just before Christmas. My son-in-law has the new I phone 11 which handles night photography really well. Last weeks photos were his and this week are the better ones I took that weren’t duplicates of his!! Enjoy!!

Thank you very much!
These pictures turned out very well. Love the colours! A wonderland.
I appreciate the feedback Darlene….these were the best that I got on my phone that didn’t duplicate any of my son-in-laws from last week.
Wonderful colors and feeling. I bet it was a delightful visit.
Thanks Brad. These were the best ones from my phone that didn’t duplicate my son in laws from last week.
Thank you very much!!
Those are great pictures Kirt, so colorful 😀
Thanks Irene…much appreciated!
A magical wonderland Kirt. I hear the iPhone 11 is fabulous. Thinking I would love to upgrade.
Wishing you all the best in 2020 and looking forward to following your photography and art adventures.
In person if you could see the shots he took on his phone vs mine … the difference is very obvious….for these two posts I took the best of both without duplicating the shots. The 11 really does take stunning shots. Thanks for stopping by!!
The Colorful trees looks magical to me. It must have been an enchanting visit!
It was so surreal and serene!! Stunning experience!! Thanks for stopping by Nancy!
Thanks for sharing both posts, Kirt. I actually like today’s photos better. I like seeing bigger patches of darkness. I think it makes the lighted areas stand out better. Just my 2¢
Well you just swelled my head as that relates to how a shot is framed….😎. For the 2 posts I took the best of both of our shots without duplicating. In person if you took a look at the same shot on both our phones the difference is obvious. I am amazed how well the 11 dies night shots, but again that’s one of the new features for that phone!!! Swelled head days thanks for the feedback!!
You’re welcome Kirt. It’s a well-deserved inflation 😏
😎 gotta love it!!
Enjoyed all the rich and vibrant colors of the lit trees of Descanso Gardens, Kirt. Your love for color is always a joy to behold.
Thanks Jet…being there in person was so surreal…
Fancifully colored trees — what’s not to love? They could be in Thistledown! 😀 Wonderful pics, Kirt. Truly. Hugs on the wing.
You are right about Thistledown…..perfect match!!
Wonderful photos!!! I imagine it was a really fun shoot. I think I’d have a great time there!
It truly was surreal and a lot of fun!! Thanks for the feedback! Have a great weekend!
Wow, your photos are amazing! So beautiful and colorful. They look like snapshots from another world. :-
The actual experience had that “other worldly” feel to it! It was incredible!!
